Our Mission at USSI is to inspire, educate, and empower talented, young players on the field technically, tactically, and physically. We have developed a summer soccer program with multiple daily workshops to teach our players the proper skills for life, delivered through their passion for soccer.


USSI will provide players with technical and tactical knowledge to empower them with the mental tools needed to play at the highest levels.

The technical and tactical summer program will be based on the principles of 1-D & 4-R’s:

  • 1-D: Defending
  • 4-R’s: Receiving, Releasing, Retaining, and Running with the ball (i.e., dribbling)

The program will force players to stop and think about the proper solutions. It will also force players to do rather than just listen and observe. Our coaches will pay attention to players’ mistakes and guide them to improve or find a better solution, while always encouraging them to keep trying. Coaches will also educate players in certain topics, such as aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, strength training, speed and agility, and the proper diet and nutrition for competitive athletes.
